Sundays bring us the political talk shows. If you see something interesting on one of them, jump on the comment board and talk about it. According to Politico, here is the lineup for this week’s shows:
White House National Security Adviser Tom Donilon will appear on four of the five major network shows: NBC’s “Meet the Press,” ABC’s “This Week,” CNN’s “State of the Union” and “Fox News Sunday.”
Meet the Press (NBC) — Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and former CIA Director Michael Hayden
This Week (ABC) — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice examines U.S.-Pakistani relations with the Pakistani ambassador to the United States, Husain Haqqani.
